The paragraphs below read like pages from one of the upcoming Planet of the Apes comic books. But no, they’re a news item submitted by Krantoor the Munificent with the tagline “This Week in Thailand.”
Samut Songkram — More than 150 monkeys invaded the primary school in tambon Ban Chu Chee and raided student lunch boxes.More than 100 pupils were overwhelmed by the invaders. The monkeys were peaceful but insistent as they grabbed food and drinks from desks and out of the hands of pupils. Monkey experts noted there was a certain element of justice involved. Humans have been encroaching on the nearby mangroves for more than a year, bothering the monkeys no end.
Those kids would be damn grateful if you could translate this phrase into Thai.
